Alpha Skin Care Intensive Rejuvenating Serum Review

SKIN CARE REVIEWS

03.15.19 AD DISCLOSURE

If you’re on the hunt for a glycolic acid treatment with a great formula and a budget friendly price tag, you may want to check out the Alpha Skin Care Intensive Rejuvenating Serum. This product was formulated with 14% glycolic acid to deliver an intense chemical exfoliation. Glycolic acid is an AHA or alpha hydroxy acid, which chemically exfoliates the top layer of the skin. Of all the main AHA’s including glycolic, lactic and mandelic, glycolic has the smallest molecule size and is therefore the most aggressive of the AHA’s. The average daily chemical exfoliant has around 3-7% glycolic acid, so you can see how potent this formula is. Because the percentage of the active ingredient is so high, we highly recommend that you start slow with this product by using it around once a week. If you find that your skin tolerates this product well and you don’t notice any irritation in the first few weeks of use, you can go ahead and up this to 2-3 times a week, although we don’t recommend applying this product every day. With all that said, this product would be an excellent option for those of you who struggle with hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and acne in particular, as regular chemical exfoliation helps to remove the dead skin cells and reveal the smoother, clearer skin underneath.
